Ezra, chapter 9, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 9

Vulgate


   1 Postquam autem haec completa sunt, accesserunt ad me princi pes dicentes: "Non est separatus populus Israel, sacerdotes et Levitae a populis terrarum et abominationibus eorum, Chananaei videlicet et Hetthaei et Pherezaei et Iebusaei et Ammonitarum et Moabitarum et Aegyptiorum et Amorraeorum.
   2 Tulerunt enim de filiabus eorum sibi et filiis suis et commiscuerunt semen sanctum cum populis terrarum; manus etiam principum et magistratuum fuit in transgressione hac prima".
   3 Cumque audissem sermonem istum, scidi vestimentum meum et pallium et evelli capillos capitis mei et barbae et sedi maerens.
   4 Convenerunt autem ad me omnes, qui timebant verba Dei Israel pro transgressione eorum, qui de captivitate venerant; et ego sedebam tristis usque ad sacrificium vespertinum.
   5 Et in sacrificio vespertino surrexi de afflictione mea et, scisso vestimento et pallio, curvavi genua mea et expandi manus meas ad Dominum Deum meum.
   6 Et dixi: "Deus meus, confundor et erubesco levare faciem meam ad te, quoniam iniquitates nostrae multiplicatae sunt super caput nostrum, et delicta nostra creverunt usque ad caelum
   7 a diebus patrum nostrorum. Peccavimus graviter usque ad diem hanc, et propter iniquitates nostras traditi sumus, ipsi et reges nostri et sacerdotes nostri, in manum regum terrarum et in gladium et in captivitatem et in rapinam et in confusionem vultus sicut et die hac.
   8 Et nunc ad momentum invenimus gratiam apud Dominum Deum nostrum, ut servaret nobis reliquias et figeret nobis tentorium in loco sancto eius et illuminaret oculos nostros Deus noster et daret nobis solacium modicum in servitute nostra.
   9 Quia servi sumus, et in servitute nostra non dereliquit nos Deus noster, sed inclinavit super nos misericordiam regum Persarum, ut darent nobis solacium, et erigeretur domus Dei nostri, et instaurarentur ruinae eius, et dedit nobis refugium in Iuda et Ierusalem.
   10 Et nunc quid dicemus, Deus noster, post haec? Dereliquimus mandata tua,
   11 quae praecepisti in manu servorum tuorum prophetarum dicens: "Terra, ad quam vos ingredimini, ut possideatis eam, terra immunda est, iuxta immunditiam populorum terrarum et abominationem eorum, qui repleverunt eam a fine usque ad finem coinquinatione sua.
   12 Nunc ergo filias vestras ne detis filiis eorum et filias eorum ne accipiatis filiis vestris et non quaeratis pacem eorum et prosperitatem eorum usque in aeternum, ut confortemini et comedatis, quae bona sunt terrae, et heredes habeatis filios vestros usque in saeculum".
   13 Et post omnia, quae venerunt super nos in operibus nostris pessimis et in delicto nostro magno, quia tu, Deus noster, non iudicasti secundum iniquitates nostras et dedisti nobis salutem, sicut est hodie,
   14 numquid amplius irrita faciemus mandata tua et matrimonia iungemus cum populis abominationum istarum? Numquid iratus es nobis usque ad consummationem, ut non essent reliquiae et salus?
   15 Domine, Deus Israel, tua clementia superstites sumus sicut die hac! Ecce coram te sumus in delicto nostro; non enim stari potest coram te propter hoc".

King James Version


   1 Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.
   2 For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.
   3 And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied.
   4 Then were assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astonied until the evening sacrifice.
   5 ¶ And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God,
   6 And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.
   7 Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.
   8 And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.
   9 For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.
   10 And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,
   11 Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.
   12 Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.
   13 And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this;
   14 Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?
   15 O LORD God of Israel, thou art righteous: for we remain yet escaped, as it is this day: behold, we are before thee in our trespasses: for we cannot stand before thee because of this.
